Shaped like a keyhole, the Bekal Fort is lavishly spread out over 40 acres. The fort was declared a ‘special tourism area’ by the Indian government in 1992. Located next to a beach, the fort offers a breathtaking view of the rocky shoreline of the Arabian Sea. The Bekal Fort is a tribute to the rich history of Kerala, standing the test of time, a silent witness to the power struggles of various dynasties. Each of its rulers modified the fort, and added a personal touch. The lofty Observation Tower, which was built by Tipu Sultan, offers a panoramic view of the neighboring townsof Kanhangad, Bekal, Kottikkulam and Uduma. The Bekal Fortand the beach have been used as a backdrop for numerous filmmakers due to its immense beauty. The fort has numerous walkways and citadels, and is completely surrounded by trenches on all sides. It is built so close to the shore that waves continually stroke its exterior walls, making it look like the fort has emerged from the water itself. Thousands of tourists are drawn to Kerala every year, and their trip is incomplete without a visit to this scenic fort.
